                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out NIATOLI ISLAND 
to see what's new.  Like, RAVAGING LORDS had to be so embarrassed when they got 
kicked off #1 spot by BAD COMPANY!  Way to go BAD COMPANY!  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  THE CYCLOPS' match with PITT cost him a loss of 12 points!  Like, SCREWFACE 
must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from RAVAGING LORDS.  Does this 
guy have a death wish or what!  Was that a tear I saw in SCREWFACE's eye, as he took 
over Duelmastership?  And wasn't THE MANIAC fit to be tied!  I hear the top team 
insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for 
PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  BAD COMPANY was NIATOLI ISLAND's 
most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are 
PHILANTHROPISTS?  BAD COMPANY, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them 
to accept an invitation!  Like, is THE TUSKER popular, or what?  He was challenged 
the most in all of NIATOLI ISLAND!  He's got a 14-11-0, is that good?  For sure, I 
was holding my breath when I found out HEAD HUNTER challenged THE MONK.  After all, 
haven't STORM BRINGERS and RAVAGING LORDS had a long standing duel in NIATOLI ISLAND? 
It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but THE MONK wants me to write about it 
since he was overcame by HEAD HUNTER.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  NIATOLI ISLAND is like such a dump, and you 
guys smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Philanthropists -- When you bloodfeud, send your best.  This way you'll leave no
excuses. -- Smirk

All -- It is clear you have chosen the silent acceptance of your oppression, just as
any spineless positivists would.  This is wise, yet futile.  There are too few teams
in this stink hole for you to hide from my hateful gaze.  Ready your stables and
order your full plate, for there is a halberd of hate sweeping your way. -- Bill

General Ikillu -- Still fighting in Sunset?

The Tusker -- Either that small shield was forged of titanium, or you are the
luckiest guy I know.  We shall see my friend, we shall see. -- Rico Savvy

Snake Eyes -- You suck! -- D.J.

Bear Creek -- Well fought again sir.  The honor was mine. -- Talon

Hammer -- Ah my old friend you have been horrible luck for me since my return.  I
should stick to fighting the Ravaged Girls.  I at least have an over-all winning
record against them. -- Rake

Monk -- A 3-3 record against a sissy like you just won't do.  That makes me D.A.
material.  Now I gotta kill ya. -- The Head Hunter

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
